In the Heart of Europe, in the Center of Germany

Hessen offers fast connections at all times for everything that needs to be quick and reliable at a certain place: the strong catchment area is equally source market, hub and destination for people, raw materials, products and data. Hessen's heart beats just in time.

Tightly controlled and intelligent networking of various transport modes - including high-speed rail networks, freeways, inland ports and the Frankfurt Airport air traffic hub - allows time savings, closely synchronized traffic intervals, late cut-off times and maximum reliability.

All European economic centers can be reached within three flight hours. The first-class infrastructure is developed consistently and as needed - which protects the environment and saves costs. High-performance broadband networks and fast internet connections are a decisive factor in national and international location competition and an indispensable infrastructure for citizens and businesses.

As a leading financial center, international transporthub, global expo and trading site, and a location for innovation, technology, education, culture and science, Frankfurt am Main and the Rhine-Main region attract businesses of every size and from every sector. 

This is the home of domestic and international market leaders. From here, many business headquarters tap into new markets and reach their existing customers. Throughout Germany. Throughout Europe. Worldwide.

Many companies in the optics, metal, electrical, pharmaceutical and medical industries have settled in Central Hessen, approx. one hour from Frankfurt Airport. This region stands out thanks to its unique education infrastructure.

In North Hessen, approx. 1.5 hours away from the city of Frankfurt, international investors encounter innovative global market leaders from the mobility, decentralised-energy and health sectors. Did you know that North Hessen - with the “documenta city” Kassel - is among Europe's top 10 most innovative regions?

Did you know...

that 42 percent of Hessen's surface area is covered by forest?

Trees also cover more than 20 percent of Frankfurt’s surface area. Widely known as the „green lung“, the largest inner city forest in Germany can be found here. It covers almost 6,000 hectares in total, with a majority of 3,866 hectares within the inner city itself.
